Japan marked 73 years since the world’s first atomic bombing and the bell tolled Monday reminds the most vulnerable tragedy in history. City’s mayor warned that rising nationalism worldwide threatened peace and standing at the park near ground zero for the annual ceremony.

Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui warned of the threat of rising nationalism and made his annual call for a world without nuclear weapons. He requested for the eradication of nuclear weapons and pledged to continue efforts to eliminate nuclear weapons.

The same year President Donald Trump pledged to increase the US nuclear arsenal. Mayor highlighted Japan’s contrary relationship with nuclear weapons. The government has chosen to not participate in the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that Japan’s response was to bridge the gap between nuclear and non-nuclear nations at the ceremony.

Mayor Kazumi Matsui said:

“certain countries are explicitly expressing self-centred nationalism and modernising their nuclear arsenals.”

“If the human family forgets history or stops confronting it, we could again commit a terrible error. That is precisely why we must continue talking about Hiroshima,”

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said:

“In recent years, it has become evident that gaps exist among countries about ways to proceed with nuclear arms reduction,”

“Our nation, while maintaining our (non-nuclear weapons) principles, will patiently work to serve as a bridge between the two sides and lead efforts by the international community”
